MathCounts School Challenges are designed to bring together students who have some interest in participating in math competitions. Held before school once per week starting in September, each meeting is its own contest between interested sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students. Teams are constructed on the spot out of students who arrive for the day. Each team works together on a set of math problems in a fast-paced contest for bragging rights. The final week of challenges is actually dedicated to an individual test to determine the school's MathCounts competing team.
Samples are available through the contest website.
Any sixth-, seventh-, or eighth-grade East Tipp student may participate in the contest.
